3 John 1:1-8 (King James Version)

<< 2 John 1 | 3 John 1 | Jude 1 >>

Salutation

1The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in [1] the truth. 2 Beloved, I wish [2] above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

Gaius' Hospitality Commended

5 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers; 6 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after [3] a godly sort, thou shalt do well: 7 Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles. 8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers [4] to the truth.
